[Q] Bootloop, no NAND backup (I know I'm dumb), can't mount /data, can't flash w Odin
Ok, going to try to cover all my bases up front. Here's the whole story.
I rooted my phone and loaded CyanogenMod about 2 days ago. It's way too easy, vastly improved the operation of my phone, so why not? Went off without a hitch. I've been informed that I should have done a NAND Backup, but I had no idea at the time.
About 4 hours ago my wife changed our phone numbers to a local area code after putting it off for the last year. I call Sprint because we're getting Error 16 Switch 386. Turns out you can just update the System Profile on the stock software, but after looking around for a while, turns out you can't in CyanogenMod. I'm like, "Ok, well I'll just put the stock software back on."
So, I try and I try and I try, but it keeps failing. I can still get back in to CyanogenMod, but ODIN won't let me flash any sofware onto my device. Well, one of the times I go to try to make it work I accidentally hit NAND Erase All. Now I'm stuck in a boot loop. I can boot in to recovery and download, but when I try to mount /data to do a factory reset, it can't. Cannot mount /data. Awesome. Now I'm getting into Re-partitioning this piece, which I seem to have successfully done once, but now I still can't flash any software to the phone because this:
<ID:0/006> Odin v.3 engine (ID:6)..
<ID:0/006> File analysis..
<ID:0/006> Set PIT file..
<ID:0/006> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
<ID:0/006> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/006> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/006> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/006> FAIL! (Auth)
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
And here we are. I've tried using different cords, different USB ports, restarting the phone and my computer, different versions of ODIN.
My .pit is CSB_signed_Fusion3_EUR_0325_V2.pit, and my .md5 is \L720VPUAMDC_L720SPTAMDC_L720VPUAMDC_HOME.tar.md5
I'm not trying to go crazy, I just wanted the bloatware and background bull off of my phone. Now I probably have a brick in my pocket.
